The Governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party for Kogi State in Saturday’s election Musa Wada has rejected the likely outcome of the polls even while final result was still being awaited.
Addressing a press conference at the state capital, Lokoja on Sunday, while collation of results was ongoing, Wada said that the results which put Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress in the lead were all false.
“Do you see anybody rejoicing? Is this how it is the day after a true victory? It is not about me here. It is about the long suffering people of the state who have been under bondage in the last four years. I won this election free and fair. Just imagine that they leave out the rigged election of Okene, Okehi and the several cases of brutality meted on our supporters, and the widely reported cases of ballot snatching, I would have won neatly,” said Wada in company of by his running mate, Hon. Sam Aro.
Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye has lost his Ijumu local government to the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Yahaya Bello.
Bello scored 11,425 votes to defeat the PDP candidate Musa Wada in the local government.
